How are you guys? It's pretty sunny here in Fort Lauderdale...
Anyway, I'm writing report 27: United First Class+BusinessFirst, 777-200, Dash-8-Q400, Silver Airways Saab 340B+, and a night in Portland, Maine + Portland Jetport FLL✈IAH✈EWR✈PWM✈EWR✈TPA✈FLL
I want to make it a tribute to all the employees of United and Silver Airways (3M), so with that in mind, I have several questions:
1. Are you an employee for United, work for a United Express carrier, or are contracted by United or United Express? If so, please let me know if I can use your username (NOT your real name) in a tribute to UA employees in the foreword of my report. sCO, sUA, C5, 9K, EV, G7, YV, YX, S5, OO, or AX, all current UA employees are welcome, I'd love to show my appreciation!
2A) N37273 was my 738 Scimitar on FLL-IAH, but are those zig-zag lines in FlightAware an error? Surely an airplane can't turn that sharply?
2B) Why does FlightAware erroneously list this airplane as being a 733 instead of the correct 738?
What causes the rainbow effect on the cockpit windshield? Is that oil or leftover deicing fluid? Seems to be most visible on Airbus frames.
N78005 was my 772 on IAH-EWR. Is it true that the General Electric 90 is the same size as the cabin fuselage of the 737? Friend told me that, but I'm not sure if it was true or not, seems fishy.
What's inside T12 Probe Access?
What city is this? Taken on approach to EWR.
Taken further down the glideslope, what airport is this?
Under N78005, what is EH-GR, and is this unique to each airplane? Meaning, does each airplane have its own XX-YY?
At EWR, how many "A/C Maintenance Zones" are there, and how are the "zones" classified? Are they by concourse?
On the 777-200, how high is the wingtip above the ground? Also, it appears that the wingtip is almost as high as the fuselage ceiling, is that true?

Gotta love SAAB! You should have asked the pilot to see the infamous NIGHT PANEL button -- the only feature that overlaps between the cars and plane divisions
N304AG was my SAAB 340BPlus on TPA-FLL, and I asked the F/O (right) about the supposed "Night Panel" button, and he didn't know what I was talking about, but did show me the knob that controls the backlight brightness. What is this "Night Panel" button?
Thank you all for your help, this 19-year-old really appreciates it. As always, anyone who answers any of the above questions will be acknowledged in the conclusion of the report.
